Sideshow Origins Angel - Aka Liam/Angelus. Available for pre-order 2/22 as is Sideshow Vampire Buffy.

Angel looks pretty good! Though I'm not sure if I like Buffy yet. I think I would've preferred the open mouth look of the other vamp figures.

I've merged your two threads together as it saves space. That's a fine head of hair on Liam btw.
When I click on the Vampire Buffy link, I get a "GrrArgh 404 not found" message, complete with the little Ubervamp himself! What is it?
This is the correct link. Though I'm sure Simon will fix it soon enough :)
Gotta say, they do a decent Angel/Angelus over there at Sideshow. The Buffy one is good too, but being half vampire it's always a little more complicated of course.

Now if they only managed to make a Faith one that's not as awful as the first one...
Angel's features are reproduced well, but that glitzy-looking top he's wearing (not to mention the plus-sized lapels) made me think of Liberace. Or late-stage Elvis. It'll probably look fine on the actual figure but there's something about that picture....I chortled.

I don't have any of the Sideshow figures but many of them are really well done. The Buffys look great. The Faith one? As EdDantes says, awful. At least it looks awful in the pictures I've seen.

Viva Las Angelus?
"Viva Las Angelus?"

More chortling. Thank you for that, Simon.
Thanks Simon and Phlebotinin, now I will forever more think of Liberace and Las Vegas when I look at this figure! :)

I have all the Sideshow figures released so far and the only one that doesn't look good (so far) is Faith. I've heard some early reports about the Willow figure not looking so good from some who have received theirs but I haven't gotten mine yet. I'm hoping they are wrong. She looks okay in the promo shots.

I hope they make another Faith one and actually get Eliza to pose for it and the guy who did the Buffy, Angel and Spike ones to do hers.
Here are some other pictures of the figures
